Happy New Year, everyone! (I guess it’s still OK to say that this late in the month. LOL) Just wanted to give you an update on my hair transition. Things are going well. I’ve been making good use of protective styling the last two months (two-strand twists) so here’s a video showing you how I […]
Evolution of a Transitioner (7 Month Update)
Time is flying! I can’t believe I have been chemical-free for 7 months. Here’s an update, but this time I’m focusing less on my hair styles and more on the evolution of my own mindset during this natural hair transition. Enjoy! If you can’t view the video in your e-mail or reader, click here to […]

Three Month Transition Length Check
I’ve been transitioning for three months and here is a progress update. I haven’t had a relaxer in 12 months and a texturizer in 3 months. Even though I texturized for 7 months, it did not take very well so after cutting 2 more inches, the back of my hair from the ears down is […]
